    DescriptionSmall structures of the micro/nanometer scale, such as electronic/optic devices and MEMS/NEMS have been developed, and the size of their elements now approaches the nano/atomic scale. This book discuses the fracture behavior of nano/atomic elements (nanofilms, nanowires, and so on) and focuses on the initiation and propagation of interface crack and mechanical instability criterion of atomic structures. This covers the fundamentals and the applicability of the top-down (conventional fracture mechanics to nanoscale) and bottom-up (atomic mechanics including ab initio simulation) concepts. New areas, such as multiphysics characteristics of nanoelements, are introduced as well.

    Review quote
    "This book makes an important and timely contribution to the field of fracture mechanics at the nanometer scale through a coherent description of the subject that combines theory, experiment and atomistic simulation. A large number of vivid figures and a comprehensive list of references make the book easy to read and to follow, which would benefit both students and researchers greatly." -Prof. Tong-Yi Zhang, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong "The fracture mechanism at the nano-scale is quite different from that at the macro-scale, but it is not well understood yet. This book covers the authors' recent outstanding works and the representative advances in the world of fracture nanomechanics. Therefore, it surely will be a very valuable book for researchers in this field." -Prof. J. Q. Xu, Shanghai Jiaotong University, China "This monograph provides a new insight into fracture mechanics for nano/micro-scale components in various electronic devices or mechanical systems. Among others, it is noteworthy that the book features new challenges in the evaluation of fracture toughness of various tiny structures." -Prof. Seyoung Im, KAIST, Korea "This unique book offers the perspectives of the fracture behavior of nano- and atomic elements such as electronic and optic devices and MEMS/NEMS. Both continuum mechanics and atomic mechanics have been extensively presented with the authors' new findings. This book serves as an excellent reference for scientists and engineers in the fields." -Prof. Kikuo Kishimoto,Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan
